softball closes season on high note
The Shorewomen rallied with four in the bottom of the seventh to win the opener, 9-8. Combined with the second game of Saturday’s twinbill at Ursinus, this was the first time
Freshman Ashley Brewer pitched a three-hitter for her first career shutout in the second game. She struck out six and was masterful after allowing two singles in the first inning, retiring 16 of the final 18 hitters.
Muhlenberg (8-28, 4-12) gave her plenty of early run support, scoring three in the first and two in the second. Freshman Jess Kasza singled in the first run and later scored on a throwing error. Junior RiRi Ferrigno hit a two-out, two-run double in the second.
Brewer helped her own cause with an RBI single in the third, and back-to-back doubles by Kasza and junior Samantha Crist gave the Mules their eighth run.
The first game was full of dramatics and long balls. Ferrigno’s three-run homer – her second in as many games – highlighted a four-run third that put Muhlenberg ahead, 5-1. Washington (9-21, 4-12) answered with four runs in the fifth, including a two-run home run.
Crist broke the 5-5 tie by belting a three-run round-tripper in the top of the seventh, but the Shorewomen pieced together four singles, two walks and an error to win the game in the bottom of the inning.
